Color Is Insignificant


I believe when the kingdom comes
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one.

~U2

I find it amazing something as insignificant as color can divide people into opposing camps with a strong leaning toward oppression or violence as a solution. It makes no sense to me. Were our eyes designed to see in a different spectrum, ultraviolet, infrared, or x-ray, a spectrum where black and white and red and yellow all looked the same, a spectrum where the thin epidermal layer showed no differences to our eyes, would life be any different? What would then become of human society?

We would likely find a way to separate us from them, to segregate so one set held sway over the others. It’s a sickness of the human condition this need to categorize fellow humans into superior us and inferior them, the ins and the outs becoming the haves and the have nots. It’s a defect in the human psyche. One day, I fear, the defect will result in the demise of humanity at it’s own hands. Hopefully, the insects will evolve into more rational creatures.
